Thirty years ago, on December 8, 1980, John Lennon was murdered outside of his New York City home, in front of his wife of thirteen years, and with his five-year-old son waiting upstairs for his goodnight kiss. He was only forty years old.
Being the thirtieth anniversary, there will be many, many tributes published today. I have nothing original to add to them, and of course, nothing can beat Yoko Ono’s own tribute. I just want to extend my best to Yoko, Sean, and Julian, and to say John, you are missed. Rest in peace.
